This all stems from the fact that parents have lost so much power in the recent generation. If i did something that was deemed wrong i would have had
very harsh words spoken to me and if i thought they were full of crap i'd have probably been slapped and bent over and given a beating. Because of
that i never ever did such a stupid thing. This did not rui my life and actually made me a very good person. I respect and love my parents for being
parents, not friends.
These days if you hit a kid (on the bum for example) you're a bad parent. If you speak to your kid a certain way, look out, you might not even have
your kids if enough people see you talk that way.
When i was a kid the world was my playground, so i'd get grounded and forced to stay in my room without the TV, sometimes not get dinner that night,
so i had to use my imagination or be REAL sorry and explain what i did and why it was wrong. And if i didn't mean it, oh boy, they knew!
These days you cannot even ground your kids. Try taking away their iphones, laptop,s televisions, social media and all the rest and they'll just find
a way to go online and tell everyone what a bad parent you are (And kids these days make up so much crap, they'll make you look 100 times worse and
lie and say they did nothing). and than it goes around that so and so is a bad parent.
The younger generation really are soulless children. NOT ALL, but so many. No will power, no respect no remorse, no care of consequences.
But it all starts with parents lossing power over how they raise their kids. yet, Media, Social Media and big corporations tell our kids every day how
they think they should live and most people don't give a damn.
It's very, very disgusting, and i just wonder what is going to happen when tthese kids have kids and what will happen. I expect the "Me, me ,me -
attention seeking generation" will probably have kids and expect the kids to look after themselves from day one, or expect their parents to do the jo
b while they complain to their friends online how life is cruel
Generalising, but you can't tell me a lot of peope don't feell this way, even from their own generation.
Heck, for the first time in a very long time, maybe the first time we're actually witnissing a generation gap within their very own generation.
i mean i hate some people my own age, but i could/can relate to them. I can imagine a lot of young people looking at others there own age and
thinking, what the hell are you.
